Cookies:

Cream butter and sugar, add remaining ingredients. Mix, will be sticky. Roll out to 1/8 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters. (This is how Joan did it. I pat balls of dough flat in my lightly floured hands and toss onto cookie sheet!) Bake 10-12 minutes at 350. Cool. This makes a very hard cookie until you fill them.

Date Filling:

Cook over medium heat, stirring. Cook until thick but not stiff. Cool, spread on bottom of one cookie, cover with another cookie. These soften overnight. Freeze well unless you have a “Keith” in your house.
